    Looks like we are winning the poll.

    For those of you who went to Penn State in the last decade or so, perhaps you remember this:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hetzel_...lding_shooting

    Like Va Tech, the school officials never learn.



    The Hetzel Union Building shooting refers to an incident at the Pennsylvania State University where two students were shot, one fatally. At the time of the incident, it was the first murder on the Penn State campus in over 25 years.

    September 17, 1996, Jillian Robbins, a 19-year old native of State College, Pennsylvania, armed with a 7 mm Mauser rifle, hid herself in a large group of bushes outside Penn State's Hetzel Union Building (HUB). Shooting in the prone position, Robbins fired 5 shots at passers-by. 21-year old nursing student Melanie Spalla was killed, and 20-year old Nicholas Mensah was wounded in the abdomen. Two students, Kerry Butler and William Mocker, later reported finding damage to their backpacks where bullets had grazed them.

    Class of 1997 graduate Brendon Malovrh discovered Robbins and disarmed the woman as she attempted to reload the rifle. Robbins attempted to stab Malovrh, but missed and wounded herself in the thigh. Malovrh stayed with Robbins, treating her leg wound, until police arrived.

    One of the fired rounds was found resting on an outdoor windowsill at St. Paul's United Methodist Church, 109 McAllister Street, and another on the eighth floor of Penn Tower Apartments, near the intersection of McAllister Street and Beaver Avenue.

    Muncy.

    Bill Mahon, the vice president for university relations, pointed to tragic shootings at non-campus sites, such as shopping malls, where people can conceal handguns.
    I don't recall any shopping mall shooting in the last decade that didn't happen in a gun-free shopping mall. Does anyone else? Given that most, if not nearly all, of the non-campus shooting site are gun-free zones, his argument is specious at best, dishonest at worst.
    Bob Owens @ Bearing Arms (paraphrased): "These people aren't against violence; they're very much in favor of violence. They're against armed resistance."
